ADOM: Resurrection (now at Release #70 ARRP) semi-$

ADOM is the predecessor to ADOM II: Legends of Ancardia. ADOM also is one of the most successful roguelike games ever.

ADOM was actively developed by myself (Thomas Biskup) between 1994 and about 2002 and gained an unbelievable number of fans during the early days of the Internet. Among other things it was rated as the best downloadable free game in 1997, got its own Usenet newsgroup (which was quite a feat in those days ;-) ), appeared in dozens of magazines all over the world and managed to thrive by leaps and bounds. In huge parts this has been possible due to the incredible fan support out there, the creative input of thousands and the fantastic community upon which the world of Ancardia was built.

Sadly in 2002 work finally caught up with me and ADOM went into hibernation as far as active development was concerned. At the same time, JADE (now: ADOM II) - the successor envisioned since 1998 - didn't manage to get a decent start, again due to lack of time. But it never hibernated completely but cooked on a small flame.

Over the years to come I fiddled with design concepts, the game architecture and various implementation details until finally during a fateful day during our 2011 holiday in Thailand I had to decide between "now or never". And I went for "now" as both the ADOM legacy as well as the JADE promise mean so much to me and I very strongly feel that there is the better part of the story behind the world of Ancardia and the struggle against (or for?) Chaos depicted in ADOM still is to be told. JADE 0.1.0 was released on my 2011 birthday as a present to myself and since then I have been extremely actively working on the game.

In 2012 yet another wonder happened... although few believed in it initially: During magical 60 days the ADOM: The Resurrection crowd funding campaign featured on Indiegogo managed to raise $90,169 (!) to resurrect ADOM - due to the most awesome community a designer could wish to have. So ADOM is back again... three public prereleases happened and we have a huge list of things that will be added over the next twelve months to ADOM to make it the best ADOM ever, among them:

    dozens of new monsters, items, artifacts
    a slew of new maps and quests, including the epic Rolf quest and the epic volcano quest
    new races and classes
    graphical tile support
    sound support
    Steam integration
    an achievement system
    and more. Stay tuned!

Getting access to ADOM prereleases
Hi everyone!

In the past couple of weeks there were a decent amount of requests by folks who either missed the crowd funding campaign or then didn't have any available funds to enter it to get access to the prerelease program for ADOM Classic. Now there is a way...
Please make sure that you read the following text very closely and understand all steps. Entering more people into the prerelease program requires me to do this manually and I'd like to avoid another round of mail- and FB-based "hotline support" as such activities really distract from programming ADOM Classic ;-)

Here are the rules:

    Determine the amount of money you need to donate (see below).
    Donate the money via Paypal to thomas.biskup(at)gmail.com.
    Send an email to creator(at)ancientdomainsofmystery.com (and no other address!) containing the headline "Buying into the ADOM prerelease program", your first name, your last name, the email address under which you donated and your current email address.

(replace the "(at)" with "@" in the text above). Once the money appears on my account I will give you access to the prerelease program. Please give me a day or two of time up to five days of time to enable access as I'll be doing this only during my breakfast ADOM preparations and not all day ;-) (and I had to learn that sometimes Paypal takes a while to process stuff, and I'm back at work and things are hectic as usual and... sorry for needing more time but experience so far shows that one or two days were not realistic).

How much to donate?

This depends on whether you already are a donor to the ADOM crowd funding campaign or not:

    If you donated as either a "Villager" or a "Seeker" (the only two donations levels without prerelease access) you will need to donate $30. In this case you must provide your full name and the email address you used to donate to the campaign.
    If you have not donated to the Indiegogo Crowd Funding campaign you will need to donate $40.

Why so much?

To be honest: I try to be fair to existing donors. I now from a number of conversations during the crowd funding campaign that quite a few people had to save in order to be donate. Making the entry level too cheap would be unfair to them. Thus I decided to differentiate by current donor status. Please don't start any discussions about the fairness of these levels (with me) - it seems fair to me and I won't change the decision as this again would cause problems with people who donate.

What do I get?

Access to all ADOM Classic prerelease versions that we create. Roughly we try to have one new version per week, sometimes it's a couple of days, sometimes two weeks or more (there must be enough interesting stuff to make it worthwhile to release a new version).

Please note that you are not allowed to distribute prerelease versions or give access to third parties.

What happens if I make a mistake?

If it's easy to clean up we'll do that. Otherwise I'm grateful for your donation. Note that I'd prefer to spend my time programming ADOM and not postprocessing donations ;-)

v1.2.0 Pre-Release 18 PUBLIC

Quote
Today I'm particularly proud to announce the release of ADOM 1.2.0 Prerelease 18. While feature-wise it just contains a couple of minor bug fixes,  new sounds and stuff it actually marks the beginning of the next phase of the resurrection of ADOM: Now we are moving forward in slow (but progressively faster) steps towards getting ADOM on Steam and other gaming platforms.

Important: You should remove the adom.data directory in order to get a fully workable feature set. See the release notes for ADOM 1.2.0 Prerelease 17 on how to activate many of the new features.

ADOM 1.2.0p18 is a public prerelease that absolutely everyone can download as we feel that the world should see all the progress on the graphical front, all the major game enhancements, etc. to ramp up more public interest in ADOM and get us to conquer the next frontiers: Steam and other gaming platforms.

In this way we not only are going to fulfill the promises of the crowd funding campaign but actually hope to establish a viable commercial environment for ADOM in order to be able to pay Team ADOM for an extended period of time and add tons of exciting stuff for years to come... far beyond what still lies ahead of us in the context of the crowd funding campaign.

If you bought prerelease access don't fret though... there are probably a dozen or more closed prereleases to follow so you'll remain in the exclusive circle of people who will be able to shape ADOM due to being able to play with it early on and provide feedback.

Please note that for now we only offer downloads via BitTorrent and a one-click hoster as the graphical version of ADOM has become so large that our hosted would kick us into the afterlife given the amount of download traffic we expect. Hopefully this works for everyone.

You can also do something for Team ADOM in order to spread the news about the continuing resurrection of ADOM and pick up the energy that we will need to make it past the Steam greenlighting process:

    Please post videos about the new graphical ADOM game play to Youtube and let us know - either by posting links here in the comments or via mail to creator(at)ancientdomainsofmystery.com.
    We are looking for a talented video artist who is willing to help us create a cool ADOM presentation video in order to use it for our Steam campaign. Besides fame, credits, a free prerelease access (if you don't already have one) I can offer a copy of the ADOM Lite RPG as a reward for your efforts. Please contact me at creator(at)ancientdomainsofmystery.com if you are interested and willing to help and let me know a little bit about you and your previous experience with doing videos.
    Tell everyone about the new public prerelease of ADOM... in blogs, forums, groups, lists, on Facebook, Twitter and wherever else you might roam. We really want this to become big (as big in ye olde goode times) so that ADOM can stay alive indefinitely... and this needs your enthusiasm and support!


Thank a lot and now go enjoying the game!

Re: ADOM: Resurrection (now at Release #48) semi-$

Release #48 for backers:

Quote
Greetings everyone!

After weeks of happiness and grief I am proud to announce ADOM Release 48 - already a big step forward in a quite obvious way as we have renamed the version numbering.

Everything right now is focussing on getting ADOM prepared and released on Steam as we all hope to thus establish a continued (permanent) existence for ADOM development. So let's review the strategy behind the changes:

Naming and Version Numbering

After having asked for opinions and having received them ADOM from now on will use the following version numbering scheme:

    The public display just will sport a release number (48 right now). That's the number of times we released a version of ADOM.
    Additionally there is an internal more classical version number (1.8.0 right now) that from now on will follow more stringent rules. The 1.8.0 currently BTW derives from the 1.20 we started with after the crowd funding campaign and the number of public releases we made. From now on it will follow the classical MAJOR.MINOR.PATCH scheme (major meaning truly sweeping new stages in the life of ADOM - Steam e.g. will be 2.0.0; minor meaning big feature additions not big enough to warrant a major change, usually incompatible in save files and patch being reserved for simple bug fix releases and truly minor additions).
    As a corollary the 'V' command (display version number) now has a true meaning as it shows both versions to interested parties.

The Steam UI Initiative

All our efforts around Steam right now focus on making ADOM easier to play, more accessible and more beautiful. Release 48 brings a lot of changes on both the ASCII side and the graphical sides, among them:

    tabbed character information displays
    context dependent command directly available for items in the backpack
    extended tutorial help
    comfortable walk commands for more advanced features ('w?' to explore unexplored locations, 'w>' and 'w<' to walk to stairs, 'wm' to attack the nearest enemy, 'wi' to walk to the nearest item stack, 'w_' to walk to a known altar and more)
    context menus when left clicking the PC and right clicking other positions with the mouse
    left clicking on a target position moves the PC to that point
    spell effects for the graphical mode
    lots of new sound effects

Next on the list are completely revised and beautiful information screens for the graphical mode. Look forward to the next couple of releases for that.

The move to SDL 2 now also makes us dream again of an iOS version and we even have looked into Xbox ;-)

Bux Fixed and Balancing Adjustments

There are many - see the change log. Most important probably are the nerved summoners which now hopefully are a lot more fun and revised breakage probabilities for missiles.

And more...

There has been a sweeping amount of changes as can be seen in the change log. Thus we consider R48 to be somewhat experimental - there surely will be new bugs and probably some instabilities we failed to find during our tests. Nonetheless we urgently seek your feedback as we want to progress towards the first Steam release as soon as possible.

Hi everyone!

We are proud to announce ADOM Release 50 - the 50th time a new ADOM version has seen the light of the day since its inception in 1994. While the release is only a rather minor bug fix release it represents an important milestone for one other reason: After a short pause in development activity we now will be moving forward with full force in order to get to Steam as soon as possible.

The roadmap for the ADOM Steam release has been laid out (although some more minor points probably will be added) and there is some pretty extensive work ahead of us. ADOM Deluxe on Steam really will be the best ADOM ever. And we wanted to start working on some of the more extensive changes with a stable version out there.


- new background image for main menu and credits
- new spell sound effects

- Feature 3183 - No torches in dark areas.
- Feature 3198 - ADOM needs a new icon
- Feature 3200 - Interrupting walk commands
- Feature 3248 - Change killer bug tile
- Feature 3249 - Restrict "your skin crawls" message frequency
- Feature 3250 - Add "Display name of your deity" in keybindings "Religion" category
- Bug 3133 - Corruption causes massive score loss
- Bug 3160 - Teleport + autopickup message order
- Bug 3196 - Monster memory crashes noteye script ASCII mode R49
- Bug 3197 - CKs now score a very large number of points
- Bug 3202 - Clicking on a friendly monster enters an endless swapping loop
- Bug 3204 - Explore mode handles "wrong perception" room very badly.
- Bug 3207 - Mad Carpenter death
- Bug 3213 - Eating vile spirit corpse crashes the game
- Bug 3229 - Noteye crashes when clicking outside of accessible map area
- Bug 3230 - z does not abort w* (Go to position)
- Bug 3232 - Noteye crashes (but is able to recover) after right-clicking unexplored territory
- Bug 3243 - PC starting w/ 1 willpower
- Bug 3246 - List of configuration variables displays Show_Corruption_Prompt red

Release #51 for backers

After a very long period of silence (due to complicated internal work that needed to be done for Steam, one vacation, a short period of work overload and many other factors) things now are moving much faster again.

We are proud to announce ADOM Release 51 (version 1.9.0). Here's the change log. This release still is work in progress as we are trying very hard to get ADOM ready for Steam (it would be a shame to miss Christmas time on Steam). Sadly there is still a ton of stuff to be done (and tax questions regarding the crowd funding campaign from the German tax offices don't really simplify my life...).

Nonetheless this will give you a first impression of the new graphical character creation sequence, he new challenge of the week game mode (I even created a forum to discuss challenge of the week games), the awesome customization options for your personalized game (difficulty levels, RPG mode and much more) and many more details. Especially in the graphical mode. Just try it and enjoy.

Edit: RPG mode does not yet work correctly. Trying to save the game and continue playing will crash it. Sorry for the oversight. R52 will fix it.


- graphical intro, main menu and character generation (work in progress)
- modular character image that displays the current equipment
- display monster info if Shift-key is pressed
- new animations for acid, fire, ice and lightning explosions
- many additional sound effects
- added developer signing to OSX binaries for Gatekeeper

- Feature 3034 - Option to turn off player ghosts
- Feature 3167 - Add game options menu
- Feature 3169 - Implement exploration mode game for ADOM Deluxe
- Feature 3170 - Implement challenge of the week game mode
- Feature 3182 - Add Steam Overlay
- Feature 3193 - Optimize w?
- Feature 3273 - Give up a 'walk attack' command if the target panics
- Feature 3284 - Differentiate highscore displays
- Feature 3285 - Make all highscores accessible from within ADOM
- Feature 3286 - Local challenge game highscore entries need to display the specific challenge geek code
- Feature 3304 - Provide more helpful skill usage messages
- Feature 3361 - Make w* movement more natural
- Feature 3366 - Orcs and dark elves should be penalized in daylight
- Bug 3234 - Mouse movement does not work in wilderness
- Bug 3235 - Cannot move to contiguous square using mouse when enemies are near
- Bug 3237 - Cannot move with mouse to square contiguous to monster
- Bug 3259 - 'w5', 'w.', 'ws' and 'w?' does weird things on some versions (like goes into "Unknown command: 'ÿ'." loop)
- Bug 3260 - Crash kicking Ball shaped statue
- Bug 3261 - Changing to ascii mode before game begins crashes noteye script
- Bug 3263 - Health bars no longer visible in ASCII mode
- Bug 3266 - Remove NotEye GPL license notice on startup
- Bug 3267 - Selecting option from menu opened with F8 or F9 does not stop key event
- Bug 3269 - Unidentified objects in .flg file.
- Bug 3275 - A and targeting (+9, 1d4+3) (unpaid, 1800gp) (10s) is lying here.
- Bug 3280 - NoTeye - Crash when using casino levers
- Bug 3289 - Noteye crashes when clicking with mouse in ADOM-specific menu
- Bug 3290 - You notice 7301098 appearing.

Release #52 for backers

Quote
We are happy to announce ADOM Release 52. Mostly it's a bugfix release with some pretty important fixes:

-Challenge games now should work correctly and are better explained in the game.
-Saving in story mode now works correctly (e.g. you can save in a game and restore the game even after dying; results will be logged in a separate highscore list).
-We have adjusted the save file format but your old save files should be compatible (make a backup copy nonetheless just to be sure). This should be the first time we successfully use the new "upwards compatible save file functionality introduced in R52).
Additionally release 52 contains another couple of tuned features and fixed bugs, see the change log for the complete details.

Finally release 52 finishes another discussion: The internal version number is 1.10.0. Thus it now is clear that after 9 comes 10 and we no longer will restart ADOM 0.9.9 Gamma 6 prerelease 3 trends or whatever. The current plan is that the first Steam release will be ADOM 2.0.0. Hopefully before Christmas.

- added display of monster experience estimate
- added new bolt sound effects

- Feature 3348 - Stone oozes are able to replicate.
- Feature 3357 - Woodcraft skill's possible benefits
- Feature 3359 - Greater Daemon are able to create lesser demons and quasits.
- Feature 3387 - Improve challenge game description
- Feature 3393 - With hunger off, if PC eats they can never get rid of satiated or bloated
- Feature 3394 - Adjust ghost danger rating
- Bug 3360 - Ratlings: traders and heroes
- Bug 3368 - NotEye Crash looking at monster memory for self
- Bug 3369 - Fix saving in story mode
- Bug 3370 - [BUG] Monsters that picked up artifacts can escape when panicking and items will be lost.
- Bug 3373 - Inconsistency in Kranach Quest
- Bug 3378 - Crowd Mode button not working
- Bug 3381 - [BUG] Neutral/friendly doppelgangers that deflected PC's missile don't become hostile.
- Bug 3385 - Challenge games should be scored but once per week
- Bug 3386 - Challenge games forget their challenge type
- Bug 3392 - The internal challenge game setup structure is not saved/restored correctly

Release #53 for backers

Hi everyone!

This is new: The first ADOM release (R53, version 1.11.0) available on Steam first. Mostly this happens for two reasons:
We want to get to Steam ASAP and thus need to receive as much feedback as soon as possible for that version.
The build process is getting more and more involved and thus it takes more time to build all variants. Prerelease testers will be next, promise!

Regarding the Steam version:
It's a closed beta available to everyone who donated $40 or more (in whatever partitioning) during our crowdfunding campaign.
All such donors have received a Steam key that is available through the ADOM self service portal. Follow the instructions there to log in.
I have created a new discussion group too discuss peculiarities regarding the Steam version.
We would like to get as much feedback as possible - please use our ticket system for any bugs you find and for any improvements peculiar to Steam you might want to see.
This very first Steam version definitely has beta character:
There probably will be many bugs as we changed tons of stuff in the past couple of weeks to improve the UI. Please report them as you find them!
There probably are many things we could improve, especially for the general Steam populace and for an improved UI. Let us know about those, too.
Here is the usual list of changes.
The real Steam release is going to happen when we feel that we have a very good first stable release. Lots of features didn't make it into the first Steam release (because that would delay it for even more weeks if not months) - see our advanced roadmap for those.

What we need: We are looking for all feedback we can get but some areas are of particular interest to us:
We want to get as many suggestions as possible on what to improve to make the Steam launch a huge success (naturally).
We would love to hear feedback on mouse-based play. What needs to be improved to make pure mouse-based play a better experience (we probably won't be able to all of that right away but we would like to cover the most important areas).
Please try the new message buffer modes (adjustable by Ctrl-nm), the various display modes (Ctrl-nd), the tutorial mode, the various other game modes, ghosts, achievements, etc. We want to hear your experiences with that, too!
And everything else you deem important.
We are on the verge of a new ADOM age and it's now or never... greatness or oblivion ;-)

Oh, and please do not forget to vote for ADOM as the game of the year at IndieDB!!!

And now get your Steam codes and start playing!

Team ADOM is very proud to announce ADOM R54 - our next step towards the public Steam release! We have put tons of work into fine-tuning various things, among them...

    -the revised UI for ADOM Deluxe / Steam (and please remember: you can use Ctrl-nd to switch back to the classic mode and a more condensed mode, too, as well as being able to use F10 to switch between ASCII and various tiled modes at any time): Now all the important statistics hopefully are back and we have added a lot of new interaction means by being able to click (with either right or left mouse button) on various statistic display. Context hints included. Try it out and let us know what you think about this!
    -removing various rough edges (e.g. the initial startup message after the first Steam install, some broken achievements, various broken places where the endless message buffer mode recently introduced lead to freezes [although in reality input was expected and the questions weren't displayed correctly]),
    -tons of minor graphical and musical improvements.

There are also various minor enhancements (like being able to use the game customization options during exploration mode to allow even more fine-tuning and fun with experimentation).

- Feature 3502 - Steam version: Improve introductory message or remove

- Bug 3474 - Steam Release: "Crtl nd" doesn't actually work

Hi everyone! We are approaching the ADOM Steam release... R56 hopefully will be one of the very last releases before Steam (I still expect one or two more but right now we focus only on fixing serious technical issues and stabilizing features for Steam - sadly the devil remains in the details).

Release #57 for backers

Quote
This release is another bug fix release while we are preparing for the Steam release. Our current plan is to:

-have maybe one other closed bug fix release (if any serious problems are found in R57)

-have a public ADOM release (ADOM 1.2.0p23 is more than a year old and there is so much new stuff that we want to have some public feedback on all the new features before going to Steam).

-then have the Steam release.

Realistically we are half a year behind our time plan and the Steam release probably will be happening mid-June.

In the meantime we are fine tuning the current version and I'm finally back to work on the ADOM RPG release to finally get this shipped. Other commitments of Team ADOM probably will prevent an earlier Steam release (as sad as that is).

Once the initial Steam version is out feature development will pick up speed greatly once again - right now we just are hesitant to introduce major new feature to prevent any new game breaking problems.

Another big change will be that I will end access to the prerelease tester circle at the end of April. All people who have bought access will naturally continue to have access to prerelease versions but we won't allow any new entries. This step will streamline the commercial future of ADOM (commercial via Steam, Gog and others, free for the rest). Prerelease versions will remain limited to the then current circle of testers.

Now go and play R57 - as always we are looking for feedback on its stability and any remaining major issues that might be a problem when releasing to Steam.

- optimized size of PNG files (~70 MB space reduction, faster loading times)
- added new music and sound effects
- fixed frost bolt head in animation

- Feature 3507 - Scrolling down the system message
- Feature 3525 - Steam: Saving settings
- Feature 3614 - Document :S in the configuration section for keymap help
- Bug 2993 - IBM guild manual appears as a book in NotEye
- Bug 3604 - "Repeat last command" Repeats "Saving Backup"
- Bug 3607 - NotEye preferences are not saving between new characters or reloading.
- Bug 3609 - Game freezes and commands are queued
- Bug 3611 - Necromancer starts with elementalist spell knowledge (and no Frost Bolt book?)
- Bug 3613 - In story mode spell Power will go back to +0 when game is saved
